Deontay Wilder scored some of the weird knockouts of his profession when he beat Malik Scott again in 2014.
The heavyweight contender was 30-0 (30 KOs) and shutting in on his WBC title shot when he confronted the 36-1-1 opponent.
Scott had lately suffered his first ever defeat to Derek Chisora within the UK.
He was recognized to be a slippery boxer and hard to hit clear.
It was thought he might present a clumsy check for the unbeaten Wilder.
Nonetheless, this didn’t turn into the case.
Within the first spherical, Wilder threw a left hook adopted by a straight proper hand which floored Scott in opposition to the ropes.
His senses have been scrambled and he was unable to make it again to his ft.
Followers and commentators questioned how the KO had happened and controversy grew across the end.
As replays have been proven on massive screens within the area, followers began booing.
They have been focussing on the ending proper hand from Wilder, which barely grazed Scott’s head.
This led to recommendations that he had taken a dive.
On nearer inspection, it was truly the preliminary left hook from Wilder which caught Scott on the highest of the pinnacle and ended the competition.
Responding to the controversy, Scott later tweeted: “Congratulations to Deontay Wilder on his victory final night time. No excuses!
“I get hit with a left hook immediately on my temple by a pure puncher. Now I so-called took [a] dive!”
